If tracking cheetahs and camping under the South African stars are your thing, then BUNAC’s Wildlife Conservation South Africa programme is for you!

Choose whether to roll up your sleeves and be actively involved in conserving rhinos and elephants; or alternatively, monitor cheetahs, buffalo and leopards in a beautiful wildlife reserve on the Cheetah Research Project.

You will have a daily safari experience monitoring and tracking the wildlife, and getting stuck into a variety of projects. The staff offer a comprehensive level of support, to ensure you get the most out of your experience - and that the project will benefit from your hard work too.

You will be living with fellow volunteers and working alongside full-time local staff. Also included are two fantastic day trips including a guided tour of the town of Soweto, home of Nelson Mandela, and trip to a cultural village to learn some basic Zulu!

You'll be helping to conserve endangered species for years to come, all while having an unforgettable experience!
